  • 2 pounds firm, not overripe pears, sliced ¼-inch thick
  • 4 cups water
  • ¼ cup lemon juice


  1. Preheat oven to 160°F. Mix lemon juice and 4 cups of water. Soak pear slices for 10 minutes in lemon water, remove and place on paper towels to absorb water. Arrange pear slices on a parchment paper-lined baking sheet in a single layer.
